Knit a square a month to use as a dish/facecloth. A simple stylish design every month for 2017 will make a beautiful stack of soft squares at the end of it. Use any soft DK cotton or linen yarn of your choice plus some 4mm knitting needles and you are good to go.

Why?…well, I ask you: “Is there anything nicer than a homemade dish/facecloth?”

Ever since I made my first one a few years ago, I have been totally smitten and have never wanted to use a shop bought one again.

Whether you are just learning to knit or you are a seasoned knitting pro wanting a quick project, a knitted dish/facecloth pattern is a perfect tool for many reasons. This is a perfect way to try out a new stitch, a bit like knitting up a swatch to determine gauge before beginning a larger project.

Another reason for loving to knit these beauties is that they make wonderful homemade gifts. In no time at all, you can create a beautiful and practical gift to give to a friend or family member. Knitted dishcloths are both a practical and fun way to explore and expand your knitting skills. Finally, everyone can use a few extra dishcloths around the kitchen, and in the bathroom a pretty stack of facecloths looks fabulous too.

Please share your beauties with the rest of us by tagging your photos with #12monthsofhappy on social media – you can also tag me in your pictures (@madewithloops on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook).

Can’t wait to see what fabulous colour and yarn combo’s you come up with!
